For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

New Pressure Canner and Canned Potatoes
For Christmas I received a pressure canner. The first ever for me. I've always canned using a water bath canner. I was a bit nervous at first, but after giving it a trial run with nothing in it (according to the directions)... I felt the confidence to can some potatoes~ something I've not been able to can since I didn't have a pressure canner! Now I'm super ready to can carrots, beans, tomatoes and more! We have already ate quite a bit of what I have canned this summer. My next goal is to get some shelves put up in the garage where I can put all my canned goodies for storage.
The potatoes turned out well although the water was a bit low in some of them. I have read online that as long as the jars seal that the food will still be good! I'm excited to try them out!
